For children who believe in fairies, our next pick is absolutely magical.
Bring the magical world of fairies, right into your little ones bedroom with these Fairy Friendship sets, whether your child is wanting to talk to fairies or they are expecting the Tooth Fairy to visit, these sets will make the mystical fairy realm a reality.
Each set comes with a little fairy door that can be stuck to the skirting board, or a bookshelf, anywhere suitable, in your child’s room. The doors are adorably cute, decorated with a love heart, as well as a toadstool. They will look fabulous, giving kids a physical place by which fairies can come and go.
Another item that each set comes with is a little bottle that contains a tiny key. This is a very special key that when left by the fairy door, will be collected by a fairy who will then use it to come and go.
From here, each set varies a little in content, it really depends on which experience you are planning to give your little one.
Fairy Door & Post Box
This pretty set comes with a miniature post box and notepad in addition to the Fairy Door and small bottle containing a key. The post box is decorated to match the Fairy Door and has a little slot through which messages, drawings or letters to their fairy friends can be posted.
The notepad included is for parents to use and reply to their children in the guise of their new favourite fairy friend.
Tooth Fairy Set
This is our favourite set by far. Complete with door and key, it also comes with a small heart shaped plaque that can be hung on the Fairy Door and it says ‘Tooth Fairy Please Visit‘. This ensures that your little one’s tooth fairy will never miss a tooth collection.
What is extra special about this set is the Fairy Tooth Box. This cylindrical container is decorated like the post box in the previous set, with toadstools and flowers. It comes complete with a lid and inside your child can place their teeth, safe and sound until their fairy can come and collect them, leaving behind a little note and possibly some money!
The Fairy Friendship sets are brilliantly creative and will bring to life the world of fairies, making them a brilliant gift for kids this Christmas.
